Sonny Emory can send a crowd into a screaming frenzy the moment he starts to introduce his outrageous stick twirling and back-sticking techniques into a solo. But this isn't what makes Sonny one of the most important voices on the drums today, it's just the frosting on the cake.
He is a graduate of Georgia State University with a B.A. in Jazz Performance. As a part time professor of applied percussion at Georgia State University, Sonny believes that success comes from God-given talent, staying in school, developing your craft, and setting long-term goals.
Sonny is as equally in demand for studio work as he is for what he can do live. He is considered to be one of the greatest R&B and Funk drummers to have come along in a while. His clinic appearances are always sensational events.
Sonny was a member of the legendary group Earth Wind & Fire for more than 12 years, but his long list of credits include: Bette Midler, Bruce Hornsby, David Sanborn, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul and Lee Ritenour, to name a few.
